An old farm and many vines surrounding it tell a story of a long tradition that no one in the family can remember when the first vine was planted..and above all this, the area of Ancient Nemea, where viniculture continues non-stop for 3,500 years.
Since 1995, when the old traditional treading tank was replaced by a contemporary winery, following the demands of modern times, Palivou Estate began its new, extremely dynamic era.
In a place, which has been characterized as Name of Origin for what is probably the most important Greek red variety AGIORGITIKO, Palivou Estate owns one of the two largest vineyards in the zone of Nemea.
More than 300 stremmas (an area equal to 1000km) planted mostly with Agiorgitiko, but also with Rodites, Malagousia, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah can lavishly offer wines of quality names.
Palivou Estate, inaugurating a new era, focused on discovering this experience, which will offer the visitor a completely different aspect in his tourist wandering. Thus, it invites you to its hospitable winery, in Ancient Nemea.
Only 127km-an hour’s drive from Athens, on the way from Korinthos to Nafplio and Tripoli, in the area of Nemea, lies the biggest vineyard of the Balkans, the “Bordeaux of Southeast Europe”, with vineyards of 25.000 stremmas.
800 meters from the imposing archaeological site of Ancient Nemea lies Palivou Estate, a small and hospitable winery, built in the family-owned vineyard.
The best way to get accustomed with the process of producing the famous wines of Nemea is to follow us on a trip through the vineyard and the wine culture, where everything begins and continues into the aging cellar of the Estate, where the 300 French and American oak barrels are located.
